day weekend in paradise
We all know it's a total cliche to say, but WHERE ON EARTH is the time going??
I can't believe it's Monday morning again...and even more ridiculous than Monday? IT'S AUGUST.
How is this possible?
The sad truth is WHO KNOWS?
Speaking of...I don't have any proof, but I suspect there have been scientific studies conducted in secret offices somewhere that confirm that time is, indeed, moving faster than it used to.
But enough about that because really, who wants to slide into the depths of time-related despair so early on a Monday morning in August? Not me, that's for sure.
About my weekend...It was full of the miscellany, which is to say THE USUAL.
(I can't stop with the CAPS LOCK today. I blame August.)
(I'll try to do better & get to the point as best I can.)
Katie came over on Friday & visited for a while, and then Audrey spent the night with me because we had some BIG FUN (sorry) planned for Saturday morning. This means that Friday was filled up with naughty shenanigans and a fair amount of hollering (mostly the infant) (some by the toddler), (a wee bit from the four-year-old angry at said toddler).
(It appears I've now moved on to parenthetical affection.)
(Let's just press on, shall we?)
Saturday morning Audrey & I were up bright & early for a birthday party(!) for her friend, Addison-who-is-really-Madison(!) and her lots of friends(!). Also there was a wonderful present that was a Polly Pocket and did you know Audrey has always wanted a Polly Pocket?
We had a great time, and after getting back into the car Audrey proclaimed it awesome. Truer words were never spoken. Three hours at a pool with your friends and birthday cake is just about as good as it gets in the preschool world. Or my world, for that matter.
After finishing up at the pool Kate & I visited some more and enjoyed some Norah snuggles with a fair amount of jiggling and bouncing and walking. (And back-patting) (Of course.)
She kinda only likes her mama right now.
Whatever. She'll change her tune once I start sneaking her the so-da.
I don't really remember Sunday because see above regarding Friday and Saturday. I think there might have been some church and a fountain Pepsi but even that's a blur & I might have made it up.
Oh! And Kate surprised me with Krispy Kreme glazed at 10:00 last night because why not???
So how about you? How was your weekend?
Did you hang out at the pool not in your swimsuit for three hours with a bunch of four and five-year-olds, secretly loving every minute? Did ya maybe burp an infant or two in your spare time? Maybe you filled the kitchen sink with water and let a two-year-old wreak soggy havoc all over tarnation??
I wanna hear all about it...especially if it involved a mess or three...or in any way warranted an ENTHUSIASTIC USE OF THE ALL CAPS.
Happy Monday :)
